Our Ref: BR3/0001/FL
1st June 2021
RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2021 – FREIGHTLINER LTD
Negotiations have been ongoing for some time but finally, an offer has been tabled. A copy of this offer can be found by following this link: https://bit.ly/2RRGBqd
Your union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered the offer and it has instructed me to hold a referendum of you and your colleagues so that you can have your say. The NEC is also recommending that vote “NO” to reject the offer as it does not meet our aspirations for a decent pay increase. Additionally, your Lead officer has reported that the Train Driving Grades have secured a 2% uplift for 2021 as part of a two-year deal.
YOU MUST HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS TO TAKE PART
The on-line referendum will close on Tuesday 15th June 2021 at 10:00
You will shortly receive an email from a company called “Choice Voting” which will allow you to register your vote. Please follow the instructions and make sure you complete this by no later than 10:00 on Tuesday 15th June 2021. Once you have voted, you will receive an email from Choice Voting confirming how you have voted and that your vote has been cast successfully.
